Five-star properties know better than most how to cater to families and the Mandarin leads the way. Kids will love the stunning indoor pool, the kid’s menu in the restaurant that’s open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and the warmest of touches, like sending stuffed animals to the room.

Our stay at the Waldorf Astoria Buckhead was beyond incredible!! My bestie and I met to have a little “mommy / GF getaway” complete with room service spa treatments and much-needed down time. From the valet to the front desk to the spa team we were treated like royals. Kimberly Jackson, our spa concierge, left no stone unturned to ensure that our day at the spa was spectacular. Her customer service and supreme attention to detail did not go unnoticed. And don’t get me started on Khalua Kinard, my facial expert!! My face has never looked this incredible. She customized both the product and treatment just for me, and gave excellent product recommendations based on my skin type and age. I’ve never had a better facial! I’m now seriously considering booking with her a couple times a month!! Loved my stay at the Waldorf and can’t wait to do it again. It’s the perfect girlfriend getaway.
What a wonderful and beautiful hotel....The staff were awesome. The room was beautiful and spacious with great room service...prime location for shopping and dining. Will definitely be returning soon. My new favorite hotel.
